Not all media moves at the speed of Twitter.
That couldn’t be more clear in the publication of a Landon Donovan/US Soccer-themed public service announcement.
The May 26 print edition of Sports Illustrated featured an ad with Donovan showing a lot of skin and highlighting the unfortunate results of not wearing sunscreen.

While not technically incorrect, the ad labels the LA Galaxy forward as “Landon Donovan, U.S. Soccer Star.”
Perhaps the tag line is the best/most awkward part. That reads: GET A SUNBURN, AND YOU COULD END UP ON THE SIDELINES.
You can’t really blame the Skin Care Foundation for making the educated guess that Donovan would be spending time on some sunny beaches.
They’re just in Los Angeles, not Brazil.
